Pierre-Luc Letourneau-Leblond has served his suspension and is eligible to play against the St. Louis Blues on Monday.

Letourneau-Leblond was being punished for hitting Vancouver forward Matt Clackson from behind during a preseason contest. "I’m happy it’s out of the way," Letourneau-Leblond said. "But I just kept doing what I had to do, practising hard and now I’m ready to play." That being said, Letourneau-Leblond skated on a line with two injured Flames players during Sunday's practice, so there's a good chance that Letourneau-Leblond will spend Monday's game in the press box.

"If you want to send a message and for the guys to learn from that, the best way is to explain it, and I think Mr. Shanahan does a good job." Letourneau-Leblond has value only in pools that use penalty minutes as a category.

Pierre-Luc Letourneau-Leblond has been suspended for four preseason games and one regular-season contest for violating the NHL's re-written rule on boarding.

The rule change focuses more on the resulting contact with the boards rather than the point of contact. Letourneau-Leblond hit Vancouver forward Matt Clackson from behind in the third period of Tuesday's exhibition game, which earned him a minor penalty for boarding. "Letourneau-Leblond took a direct route toward Clackson, hit him squarely from behind into the boards and drove through the check high and hard," said NHL disciplinarian Brendan Shanahan. "Clackson's back was turned toward Letourneau-Leblond well before the contract, requiring that Letourneau-Leblond avoid or minimize the check completely. He did neither."

The New Jersey Devils have sent Pierre-Luc Letourneau-Leblond to Calgary in exchange for a 2012 fifth round pick.
